Importance of sustainable development for Lighthouse College

Over the past dozens of years, we have witnessed increased international attention in incorporating the concept of sustainability in education, in order to build a future generation capable of dealing with sustainable development. We live in a rapidly changing and highly competitive time. This highlights the importance of education and the restructuring of its curricula, in order to be consistent with societal needs and compatible with the region’s technical and media variables.

Undoubtedly, the foundation of attention to sustainable development is the fundamental objective of the next phase. This goal must begin with attention to education at all stages and pillars, especially those involved, including teachers, workers, learning tools and others, with a view to enhancing citizens’ value and sowing interest and loyalty to Bahrain and its future.

One of the key strategic objectives of sustainability is to focus on future generations’ lives and quality of life and thus create a society capable of understanding and working to protect our natural sources, where the sustainability requirements applied require educating young generations in a way that enables them to exercise a leadership role to pursue a sustainability strategy. Education for sustainable development needs a clear local strategy and is part of the global network that helps achieve this goal. in which many countries in the world have integrated sustainability into their education systems, There are large numbers of experiences that can be used to improve education’s potential to create a young generation ready to build high sustainability capabilities and support a culture of local sustainability. Sustainable development has shifted the focus of economic policy from economic growth — represented by GDP growth — to development in its broad sense, which takes into account the conservation of natural resources and the environment, where sustainable development aims to achieve social justice, not within one generation, but between successive generations.

Sustainable development “is not a low standard of well-being over time”, in the sense that any pattern of development that is concerned with improving the current standard of well-being of individuals at the expense of their future well-being is unsustainable.

Sustainable development aims to maximize the net benefit of economic development, taking into account the preservation over time of the quality and level of environmental resources and services.

The right to education for both sexes is one of the Millennium Development Goals, and the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Report emphasizes that sustainable development cannot be reduced to the economic and political dimensions, but must also take into account the cultural, social, ecological, human and spiritual dimensions, making the role of education even more crucial.
